    cooling Q for core 2 duo

    hey guys been a little busy ill have pics of the case and some mods i did for it in a little while battery died on my camera. as for the case i wouldnt say that i love it but it is the 3rd lian li case that ive owend first was the v2100b pluse but i got tired of moving that to lan parties although it was super big and had room for anything i could ever want in it. 2nd was LIAN LI PC-7B PLUS II BLK its almost the same case as i have know but it has a 120mm fan in back but the mb try doesn't pull out like this one does. i do like the window on this case and the good thing is is that the side panels are inter changeable between the two cases

  12. im looking at buying this case for a new build and was wondering how much room was in between the bottom of the case to the bottom of the cd-rom cage. i have a lian li v2000b pluse and would like to pull out half of the hard drive bays in that case and mod them into the bottom of that case. from the looks of it i think theres enough room. thanks for any help

  14. well i got a new hd last night to add to my computer i have a 160gig sata and a 320gig sata both western digital. the new on is also a 320gig sata wd drive that i tried to install last night. the 160 is in sata1 320 in sata2 and the new on pluged into sata3. i formated the new drive and went into the bios to see if it found the new drive and it didnt. i restarted and let it boot up on main boot screen it shows cd dvd it has two spaces like its trying to find more ide divices 160 320 it loads past this and some other stuff the goes to the raid setup were you can hit f4 to enter or do nothing and it will go on to load windows. at that screen it shows a 320gig hd with a 0 next to it. does this mean that drive is in raid 0 with one of my other drives. i let window load and it shows up as a third hd that i can put stuff on. thanks for any help new drive is going in same rig as sig

    New Case Project

    well i havent started it yet im just putting ideas together right now but that is the case i will be using. im kind of brain storming on how to blow air up behind the mobo and onto the back of the processor
  16. well im starting a new case project for a new computer. all of you wondering if im going to finish the xbox ps2 case i am, i pulled everything out last night and started getting it ready for the weekend. but the new case is going to be a lian li v1200b+ case. i will be moving most of the water cooling system over to the new computer and here is a layout of what i would like to do. dont make to much fun of my mad paint shop skills. so as you can see nothing is to scale. case will be blowing air from front to back. on the side im going to mount the radiator with a snorkel device sucking air through the rad and blowing it out the top. the snorkel im thinking of making it out of fiberglass. and at the top there is a little intake to suck all the hot air out of the top of my case. as for the radiator i dont know if i want to go with a single 120mm or a duel 120mm radiator and the top exost fan i might use a 80mm ventec tornadow since i have 10 of them laying around from my first case i had. well what do you guys think. any other things i should do to it

  20. was standing in the shower today and was thinking what i could mod into my case and this popped in to my head. i have a xbox and ps2 that sit on my desk and thought what if i take them apart and mod them into my case. pics of my case here http://www.overclockersclub.com/gallery/?act=case&id=1066 my case should have enough room to put both in ill have to look tonight but i thought of cutting out the two hd rails and maybe that sheet of aluminum in the front for more room.

    Intel Cpus

    i think im going to wait till the new 975x boards come out and pick up a 955ee to go with it. ive read that they can be overclocked to 4.26ghz and still have half way good temps. or just wait and get something with a 65nm core because the dont heat up as much as a prescott.
  23. i was playing on the net today at work looking for a new lian li case and ran by this webpage. has anyone bought something from this place? i looking at the v1200b+ case and they have it for 199.00 and newegg has it for 250.00. i guess id just like to know if anyone has had problems with them.

    Intel Cpus

    i do a lot of video editting gaming comes second so i would rather stick with intel, but the computer is still about a month away from being built so parts might change and i may go with amd but i never really have had a problem with the prescott. i have a 3.2 the one in my sig and its never gotten over 42c load im my rig. if i were to go with amd what would you suggest for processor and mb?
